About this event

Herring gulls loop and wheel overhead as Juanjo Mena conducts the BBC Philharmonic in the world premiere of David Matthews’s A Vision of the Sea, inspired by Shelley’s poetry, the pull of the tide on the Kentish coast and an evocation of the sound of sunrise as recorded by scientists from Sheffield University.

Nobuyuki Tsujii – a regular collaborator with the orchestra and a winner of the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition – makes his Proms debut in Rachmaninov’s Second Piano Concerto before Mena and his players tackle Nielsen’s irrepressible ‘Inextinguishable’ Fourth Symphony.
